The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recently stated that there's a greater than 90 percent chance that El Niño will continue through Northern Hemisphere winter 2015-16, and around an 85 percent chance it will last into early spring 2016.
As perhaps the strongest El Niño on record forms in the eastern Pacific Ocean, public officials in California are preparing for a winter in which disastrous floods might interrupt the state's drought emergency. The members of this distinguished panel will discuss current weather predictions, how this water could help resolve the current drought, what has been done to better control flooding in the Los Angeles basin since the last wet El Niño years of 1982-83 and 1997-98, and effective long-term solutions.
